Neodymium oxide is mainly used as colouring agent for glass and ceramics, raw material for metal neodymium and strong magnetic NdFeB.

The addition of 1.5% ~ 2.5% neodymium oxide in magnesium alloy or aluminum alloy can improve the high temperature performance, air tightness and corrosion resistance of the alloy, which is widely used in aerospace materials. In addition, Nd:YAG crystals doped with neodymium oxide generate short-wave laser beams, which are widely used in industry for welding and cutting thin materials with thickness below 10mm. In medical treatment, Nd:YAG crystal laser is used to remove the wound or disinfect the wound in place of a scalpel. Neodymium oxide is also used in the coloring of glass and ceramic materials as well as rubber products and additives.
